Trumps Life Matters
“Hillary sucks but not like Monica,” shouts the vendor holding the T-shirt with the same slogan. Men and women alike turn his way, look at the shirt, laugh, and carry on with their conversations. At the same rally before Trump came on stage, I hear a woman tell her teenage daughter, “I wanted to bring you here to show you what real morals and values are.”
This is an image from my ongoing series, Drunk on Trump, an outsider's view on the Trump phenomenon in the U.S. I shot them in my usual style of multi-frame exposures on film, with no manipulation in post, adding to the sentiment that this is a confusing dream we’re all just trying to make sense of.
